ANTH 2400 V11 - Introduction to Fashion and Culture
Summer Session I, May 30 - June 29, 2023
Online: MTWTh, 01:00PM - 04:00PM

This introductory lecture course is required for students pursuing the fashion studies minor. In this class, students will be introduced to cultural and media studies concepts that will equip them with the theoretical and methodological tools necessary to explore fashion as a historically situated and context-dependent form of communication and meaning-making. The course considers the implications of fashion within systems of power, everyday acts of self-presentation, and larger politics of representation.
